yummy cupcakes & sugar cookies

It's no secret that I love cupcakes. You may also know that I'm a fan of pom-poms, garlands and cupcake toppers.

Having said that this next part is not going to surprise you one bit. I immediately fell head over heels when Brittni of papernstitch wrote to me about Carrie Strine (one of their current exhibitors). Pom-poms, garlands and cupcake toppers ... oh my!

Talk about the cutest party kit ever! I'm totally crushing on this color combo.

Buy lets just say that ... for some crazy reason (Heaven forbid) ... cupcakes are not your thing. Perhaps these bright sugar cookies will tickle your fancy.

long time no see: old fashioned taffy

Check out what I found while shopping with my mom. I loved this stuff when I was a kid!

Do you know how hard it was for me to not take a bite out of these until I was done photographing them?!?! My mouth was watering the whole time. :)
